According to Bob Pockrass of Fox Sports, Brett Moffitt has changed the series he will be competing for points in, now running for the 2021 Xfinity Series championship.
Moffitt will start acquiring points this weekend at Talladega Superspeedway, the same place he scored his first top-five finish in Xfinity last season. Because Moffitt has competed in all seven Xfinity races this season, he’s eligible for the playoffs. In six Camping World Truck Series races this season, Moffitt, running full time for Niece Motorsports, was sitting 15th in the championship standings, 39 points below the cutoff. During the 2021 Xfinity season, Our Motorsports has seen an uptick in performance, currently ranking 14th in the owner standings. Moffitt has a best finish of second in the season opener at Daytona and a trio of top-10 results.-jayski.com
